-runner's status this weekend. mitt romney won michigan straw poll by a 3-1 margin over perry. now, romney's father served as michigan governor in the '60s making the son somewhat of a home state favorite. in florida, herman cain took top billing. he drew twice as many votes as perry, with romney in third place. cain says he won because voters are beginning to notice his 999 tax plan. here's how he explains it. >> my plan is bold because it throws out the tax code and imposes a business flat tax of 9%, personal flat tax of 9%, national sales tax of 9%. it replaces all of the taxes that people are now having to grapple with and it provides search engine to the business community which is what they're looking for in order to grow this economy. >> governor perry jumped into the race for the gop nomination. that was just six weeks ago. instantly topped the polls but critics say that perry's debate performances have been kind of shaky, leaning to some doubts. >>> well, in 3 1/2 hours we're going to get new details on the washington monument and perhaps when it's going to reopen to tourists. it's been cl
